Many thanks KG, I'm trying to get to grips with the Irish records, especially the lack of more recent ones too!! Handy to see the parish.
Have found the next generation down too Montgomery/Vance, the challenge is now working which line a paternal grandfather came from!

Hello Linny1,
Everyone who has an interest in Co. Longford must have a copy of “St Paul’s Historic Graveyard Newtownforbes, Co. Longford” Burial Records from 1696 to 2016. Contact Maura and Desmond Mooney at Meadow Court, Newtownforbes.
I have been remiss in not following up the Percivals in Australia and so completely missed out your direct connection to the Percival Aircraft Co. And its great part in aviation history.
You have no idea how wonderful it is to have a real “Biggles” type in my “O’Neill and Lockhart Family Tree” and now to look forward to name dropping amongst the descendants of all the various vagabonds, charlatans and snake-oil salespersons I seem to have collected on it over the years.

But I do need some cross-checking with the details of Henry Percival (1823-1895) and perhaps you may accept this challenge:-
Henry, son of John P and Anne Rosemond-
Went to Australia with his brother Arthur in 1853 and
Returned to Ireland 1859 and
Married Frances Percival 20 Dec 1860 and
Had a dau Annie P in 1862 and
Returned to Australia about 1862 and
Returned to Ireland in 1889 and
Married Selina Moore in 1891 and
Had dau Selina Roy Percival in 1892 and
Died in 1895. Do not know location of grave.

I thought that our Henry had a slightly riotous life but it was only later that I followed his other connections in Dublin. This brought me to the Moore/Stephenson family of Drogheda, and to the Wilkins family. William Wilkins MA was a Headmaster of the High School in Dublin and since my grandson would be going there I decided to take a look at their web site. This time I decided that I would follow through with these Wilkins and check them all, one by one. Oh dear! Follow the trail from William to Edgar to Maurice and you will see what perseverance can do!

Talking about DNA, you boast that you have had your DNA done. Well, I had mine done, and you are nowhere in sight. Hmmm… you did mention something about being the wrong side of the blanket. Ha!
I have 594 fourth cousins or closer and I do admit that I wake up in the middle of the night and think “what have I done to deserve all this?”

Let us know what you think about our Henry!
